Students of National Institute of Technology (NIT) here have gone on hunger strike demanding regular class and timely declaration of results, which have been severely affected due the ongoing unrest in Kashmir valley.
“We have been on hunger strike since September 14, demanding regular class work should commence immediately and a placement week should be organised from September 20 to 27,” a group of students said.
The students said if college authorities were unable to arrange classes during the day, they were willing to attend night classes in order to ensure their academic semester is not wasted.
“Our institute has been intermittently functioning since June 11 because of unrest in the Kashmir valley. This has affected our academics, final-year placements and the protests have at times posed serious threat to our lives,” a student said.
